As the first match of the tournament the level was expected, but a win is still a win even in 5 sets.
LYY doing LYY things.
Gong started off slow, but picked up the pace.
Diao's sets are still hit and miss, mainly with Yuan.
Wang Yunlu played her role, not the most eye catching performance, but her tough serving helped China take the lead in the 5th set eventually winning it.
Xu Xiaoting came in and lost a point during a really good rally due to double touch...
The biggest take away was seeing Wang Mengjie play amazing defense. Thank god she came back!
Brazil has some key players missing so they'll be stronger come the finals. China doesn't have any players to add in so it'll be on them to clean up their own problems.
